Rara National Park Trek

The small but exotic Rara National Park lies in the far western region and offers a representative sample of the region  flora and fauna. Sprawled over Mugu and Jumla districts, the heart of the park is the country  biggest lake, Lake Rara, from where the park got its name. The lake is as deep as 167 meters at some places, and drains into the River Mugu Karnali via Nijar Khola. The park is mainly covered with coniferous forest while the area around the lake is dominated by blue pine. Rhododendron, juniper, spruce, oak and cypress are found at around 3,000 meters while at higher altitude pine, spruce and fir are more common. The rich vegetation of the park is home to the endangered red panda, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, leopard, jackal, Himalayan Tahr, wild yellow-throated martin, wild dog, wild boar, common langur, rhesus macaque and common otter. During winter the park is enlivened with different species of birds like coots, great-crested grebe, black-necked grebe, shyred crested pochard, mallard, common teal, merganser and gulls. Migrant water fowls and gallinaceous birds can also be seen during certain seasons. The best time to visit the park is autumn, spring and summer. The best way to reach Rara National Park is from Jumla. Jumla district connected. to Nepalgunj, the commercial hub of the mid and far western region, by air. From Jumla the park is a two-and-half days trek away.
Rara Lake lies in the remote far northwest of Nepal. The lake is beautiful and tranquil. The region around Jumla and Rara Lake is still relatively unexplored.
Our trek starts from Jumla, the largest upland hill town in west Nepal. Rara is Nepal's largest lake and lies at an altitude of 2980m. An outstanding snow-capped panorama of Dolpo and Tibetan mountains overshadows the scene across the deep clear waters of the lake. The National park consists of Himalayan black bear, leopard, black panther, musk deer, red panda, wild boar, Rhesus and languor monkeys and numerous species of birds.

The final four days of the trek offer superb views over Mugu, the southern mountains of Humla and the border ranges of Tibet. The trail takes us through grassy alpine pastures and remote villages, before descending steeply off the second pass to Jumla. From here, we fly back to Kathmandu via Nepalgunj.
